A native of Long Island, Janet began performing in the early 1980s in New York City's Greenwich Village. After moving to Wisconsin in 1985, she became established as a solo vocalist and guitarist, with much of her repertoire gleaned from the Tin Pan Alley era.

In 1998 The Janet Macklin Quartet was formed. The jazz quartet has performed at many state festivals, including Green Bay's Bayfest and Art Street, Appleton's Art in the Park, The Ripon and Neenah Jazz Festivals, The Fond du Lac Art Center Jazz Concert Series, The Kettle Moraine Jazz Festival in West Bend, Milwaukee's Bastille Days, Summerfest, Boerner Botanical Gardens, Cathedral Park Square Concert Series, and A la Carte at the Zoo, as well as Madison's Isthmus Jazz Festival and Art Fair on the Square. The band's club dates include regular appearances throughout the state, including numerous venues in Madison and Milwaukee. Numerous art museums have used Janet for openings and special events. Janet is a 2001 WAMI nominee for best female vocalist. (Wisconsin Area Music Industry)

The Janet Macklin Quartet consists of Janet on guitar and vocals, and various combinations of the finest jazz drummers, saxophonists, and upright bass players in Wisconsin and places beyond. Piano is the newest introduction to the group, forming a truly fine jazz quintet.

The band explores the jazz music of the 1920s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, and features works of the following artists, composers and lyricists: Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Les Paul and Mary Ford, Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Django Reinhart, the Gershwins, Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, Fats Waller, Cole Porter, Dorothy Fields & Jimmy McHugh, Hoagy Carmichael, Johnny Mercer, Benny Goodman and Chick Webb, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, and Gus Kahn. The group regularly performs a number of original compositions as well. Janet still performs as a solo artist, as well as working with a duo, trio, quartet, and quintet.

Janet's 1999 recording project was titled after an original piece, "I Think of You." Cadence Magazine called the music, "Genuinely charming."

The quartet's newest release, "Floating on the Silence," is now available. It is comprised of standard jazz vocal compositions from the 1930's, 40's, and 50's.

Both recordings are available at area record stores and retail outlets, at all performance venues, at, through NorthCountry Distributors, and through her website,, which also contains articles, reviews, audio clips, and an updated performance schedule.

In 1995, Janet became involved in theatre and has performed as an actor, composer, and musician throughout Eastern Wisconsin, from Green Bay to Milwaukee. She appeared weekly on the public radio program, "Hotel Milwaukee," as a vocalist with the house band and as a regularly featured performer during the 1996-1997 season. In 2001, she was a featured artist in the Women in Jazz partnership project between the Oshkosh Opera House Foundation and the Women's Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation.

Janet is also an educator working in the elementary school classroom. She was a 2000 recipient of the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Teacher Fellowship.
